Brian Van Rheena and Charles Prowell

 


Charles and Brian in Piedmont.

 

 
 
 

Brian and his crew are available for all installations in the following San Francisco Bay Area locations:
East Bay
Marin County
San Francisco
The Peninsula
Sonoma County
Napa County

Your project inquires begin with Charles or Ben.


For 15 years Brian's licensed construction firm has managed the majority of our Bay Area installations.We hold his workmanship and his crew in the highest regards. Courteous, accountable, fairly-priced, and with a sentiment toward the craft that is above reproach.

However, they are not landscape or product designers. This aspect of your project is drawn from your own resources, and with the help of Charles or Ben. Brian will, however, provide you with a full and comprehensive installation, while providing the crucial measurements that enables Prowell Woodworks to fabricate your products. Brian will also be available to advise you on the most appropriate layout. But it is unfair to ask Brian to select a specific style gate or fence or arbor, etc that is most appropriate for your landscape.

And yet, more often than not, they are secured for additional site work unrelated to the Prowell installation, covering a scope that includes full addtions, fiull remodels, and just everything in between.

The Rest of the Country
Homeowners who are their own installers should understand they are welcome to call or write with their own questions and concerns, before or during their installation. For the most part, we will review that process over the course of your order. It should be noted that approximately half of all gate orders are installed by the homeowner themselves. Driveway Gate installations are best performed by qualified carpenters or contractors. The majority of fence installations are performed by carpenters, contractors, or landscapers.

With your finished product will arrive a packet that will include: A Catalog; Appropriate Installation Guides; A reminder sheet of the most common mistakes made during installation; and the same dimensioned drawings that were originally approved prior to fabrication in the shop. These drawings will have the pencil marks and notations made in the shop and may even exhibit a coffee stain or two. They are your working drawings.

What we've learned over the past few decades:

1) Reccommending a remote installer who may have been involved with another of our projects in any given area intimates thate we know and trust him, when in fact we know nothing of him. He was simply the installer secured by a previous homeowner to install their project.

2) Reccommending a remote installer we've never met who consequently visits your site is to present this installer as your first and only face-to-face conection to Prowell Woodorks. He may show up late, or not at all or perform the work ingloriously. He may be rude or unintelligent. His behavior impacts your impression of Prowell Woodworks.

3) Remote installers regularly attempt to sway the homeowner against Prowell Woodworks in lieu of being hired to provide a facsimile of the same work themselves for a better price. Facsimile is the key here. We've lost innimerable projects due to this phenomenon. The homeowner must often be determined, insisting on what they want.

4) Reccommending a remote installer associates Prowell Woodworks with that installer as if we were business associates and therefore liable for his or her workmanship.

5) We will often hear from whomever you eventually hire. They will call or write to check specifications or present a list of questions, which we will answer promptly. There is no link to competency or incompetency between those who reach out with questions and those who do not. What we can determine, from contact with your installer by phone or email, is their level of skill. Their level of experience in the trade.

6) Homeowners who are their own installers should understand they are welcome to call or write with their own questions and concerns, before or during their installation. For the most part, we will review that process over the course of your order. It should be noted that approximately half of all gate orders are installed by the homeowner themselves. Driveway Gate installations are best performed by qualified carpenters or contractors. The majority of fence installations are performed by carpenters or contractors, although it's not uncommon for the homeowner to approach this.

7) With your finished product will arrive a packet that will include: Appropriate Installation Guides; A reminder sheet of the most common mistakes made during installation; and the same dimensioned drawings that were originally approved prior to fabrication in the shop.
